Great Displays, Visit Option Good for Rainy Days...See the next best thing to the ""Real Hunley""...

Plan on making this very interesting tour of Charleston's past...Things so well preserved and displayed the eye can not believe sometimes what is being viewed...Feel as if you are traveling back in time in sections of the hallways...Did not realize Charleston had such a long and diversified past in history...Enjoyed the Hunley Submarine replica on the museum grounds outside, since I came all the way from Florida to see the real Hunley with no luck...Something should be done about that, but thats another story...Anyway, this was really a great indoor visit on a rainy day so not as to waste a total day...Helpful personel and museum pricing was very resonable...
